Hello. Because of a virus I just did a full reinstall of windows 7 starter on my netbook and it seems to run slower than before when it had the netbooks original software on it.
It is a Asus eeepc flare 1025c(1GB ram) and it ran Win7 starter before as well as all the programs that asus put onto it.
Funny thing is I swear it runs slower than before. I got my copy of Win7 off digital river
and deleted one file so I could choose windows starter. Activated it during setup. Installed comodo free firewall and avast anti virus. I also had to download drivers myself for video acceleration,ethernet and network cards and bluetooth.
I also comodo not to run their DNS program on setup.
Thing is it now seems like the PC is choked for memory usuage and runs slow. Trying to update window was frustrating as nothing seemed to be happening. As if nothing was downloading and the process in tskmanager was stagnate. In fact when I look at tskmanager now, most of the process memory values don't seem to change much. So even downloading firefox it seemed like nothing was happening. Like nothing could be downloaded. Everything did eventually work after some re-attempt, but it took hours. I set up utorrent to test download speed and it was fine.
Is it better for performance for these small machines to run the software that comes with the netbook rather than blank everything and do a full reinstall yourself? Do I have a problem with the new firewall or the drivers I installed?
PS: I forgot. Even time i boot i get a message
asus setup.Cant find target in E:\graphicsVGA_V8_14_8_1064\asussetupvgapatch1.ini
